Flying Scotsman 2nd Tender
« on: December 30, 2011, 03:04:02 pm »
hi yall

iv got on my layout the nrm flying scotsman model (the one with smoke deflectors), and iv always fancied making a 2nd tender for the Scotsman.

anyone know how i could go about this? i know its not like regular tenders as its just a corridor straight through, and i thought about using the Del Prado model but its slightly smaller compared to the farish model so looks weird.

any help is appreciated

cheers

Obvious approach is to simply take a second Farish Gresley tender and modify it suitably. Shouldn't be too big a challenge - needs a coupler and buffers fitted at one end and another corridor connection.

Would make a nice little project I think.

Alan

The most simple approach may be to get one complete tender and one bodyshell, and splice the corridor end from the bodyshell onto the other tender.

I've got some spare tender bits here that may be of interest to you.

Cheers,
Alan

Do you mean you want to run her with two tenders?

The second tender was of a different design. Click on the top pic on this page.

I don't know if the second tender was attached when the loco had smoke deflectors. I don't think it was.

i think the second tender only carried one item, cant remember if it was coal or water but I dont think its available rtr so two like this will have to do.

it only carried water, so a little conversion is in order, cut out the coal bunker and replace that section with part of a roof carriage or wagon roof. should look ok then

I have the same project on my 'To Do' list. Here's a snap of a OO model at an exhibition somewhere in the West Country a couple of years ago. Can't vouch for its authenticity.
